The trampoline is one of the best purchases we ever made. It has provided hours of entertainment. We bought it when Katy was 2 and even at that age, it was a lot of fun! Mya is 12 and still loves the trampoline. We are very happy too to have a net around it. To us, for safety, it is a requirement! We have it now 4 years so it has lasted a long time too!! All so worth it!
